Place far away from worries of the world
Very well set up Bach in place far away from worries of the world.
A little piece of paradise
Wonderful in every way
A wonderful property, magical location, and smooth experience all round. Thank-you.
This was my second stay at the library. Can’t ask for a more beautiful and peaceful place to spend a few days. Enjoyed kayaking on the inlet and the beautiful sunsets. Thanks Anna.
A highlight of our time in New Zealand
Staying in Anna's sweet little bach was a real treat. The pre-arrival communication
was clear, location was great, the amenities complete, and Anna is truly the kindest host of any property I've ever booked in my life. She is a gem! We even got to meet the caretaker on the way out and she was delightful to chat with as well. I will absolutely stay here again in the future. Thank you for your kindness Anna!
A lovely place with a great vibe. We loved listening to music and watching the changing sky, the simplicity and beauty of the place and all the great things available such as kayaks, bikes... Magic.
